    1. I have no programs open besides activity monitor and finder and I'm using 2.4 gb of ram?

    2. Fans spin and MBA gets hotter while downloading stuff?

    Also, where are the fans? Does it blow out right by the hinge?

    If the machine has been up for a while, it's perfectly normal. Also, remember that free RAM is wasted RAM, and inactive RAM is a cache of your hard drive.

    Then you shouldn't be worrying about it.

    And yes, your computer is going to get hot.
